The flag of France shows the colors blue, white and red in a vertical arrangement. It is the first and most famous national flag in the world, served as a model for many flags in the world, and is known as "The Tricolor". The colors blue, white and red have their origin in the combination of the colors of Paris (blue and red) with the royal white of the Bourbons. They were officially introduced for the French cockade on 04.10.1789. The current arrangement and sequence of the colors of the flag was established only in 1794.
Up, children of the fatherland!
The day of glory is here.
Against us tyranny
bloody banner raised. (twice)
Do you hear in the land
The roar of the cruel warriors?
They are closing in on us,
To behead your sons, your wives!
To arms, citizens!
Close the ranks,
Forward, let's march!
The impure blood
water the furrows of our fields!
What does this horde of slaves want,
Of traitors, of conspiring kings?
For whom these mean fetters,
These long prepared irons? (twice)
Frenchmen, for us, ah! what ignominy,
What wrath this must provoke!
One dares to think of it,
To lead us into the old bondage!
What! Foreign riffraff
would rule over our homes!
What! These mercenary hordes would
Our proud warriors down! (twice)
Great God! With chains on our hands
Our heads would bow to the yoke.
Vile despots would
Decide our fate!
Tremble, tyrants and you lowlifes
Shame of all parties,
Tremble! Your wicked plans
Will be paid back to you at last! (twice)
Everyone is a soldier to fight you,
When you fall, our young heroes,
The earth will beget new ones,
Who are ready to fight against you!
Frenchmen, you noble warriors,
Stagger your blows or withhold them!
Spare these sad victims,
Who reluctantly take up arms against us. (twice)
But these bloodthirsty despots,
But these accomplices of Bouillé,
All these tigers who mercilessly
Rend their mother's breast!
Holy love for the fatherland,
Guide, support our avenging arms.
Freedom, beloved freedom,
Fight with thy defenders! (twice)
So that victory under our flags
To the sounds of stout men's aid,
So that your dying enemies
See thy victory and our glory!
We will go on life's way,
When the elders will be no more,
We will find there their dust
And find their virtues trace. (twice)
Rather share their coffin
Than outlive them,
We will with lofty pride
Avenge them or follow them.
